Vegetable Gardening in the Rogue Valley   

This course will teach beginning gardeners and those new to the Rogue Valley how to grow vegetables year ‘round from seed selection to harvesting. The instructor’s emphasis is on science-based information and “how to” techniques to enable students to achieve a successful garden the first year. More experienced gardeners may learn new techniques to improve their vegetable gardening skills. Students will be asked to read assigned pages in the text, “Garden Guide to the Rogue Valley: Vegetables, Berries and Melons” by Jackson County Master Gardener Association (OSU Extension), 2017. Topics will include soil, seeds, growing cool and warm weather crops, controlling pests and diseases, fertilizing, irrigation, compost, and harvesting and storing your produce, plus much more. Teaching methods will include PowerPoint lectures, live demonstrations, and class discussion/group exercises, plus plenty of time for Q and A.

NOTE: The required text is available at local retailers for about $20. Students will be given a list of retailers prior to the first class.
